Subject: "It's a movie camera...You can move around!"
In the early days of movie cameras some people (older ones especially) had to be convinced that standing still for the camera was not necessary, and, in fact you're supposed to move around. There are some shots of that here. And then, there are the hams, who got the message.

Very good quality considering the age of this film.

Is that Felix the Cat?
And how did someone with a home video camera film that? Did they smuggle their camera into a movie theater just to film part of a cartoon?

Subject: 1937, Really
Several shots show 1937 Michigan license plates clearly. The service station building shown at Maryland and E. Warren still stands, although it is now a tire store. No gas pumps; sorry!

Nice to see Gas Stations back when they were service stations too. And good old Briggs Stadium. Still missed by many.
